Dear Miss O’Reilly

Thank you for your letter forwarded here. After much moving about for shooting, I am settled in Edin burgh till the 9th, the polling day for Midlothian. I am doing what I can to help my cousin in the way of company whilst the election is going on. I think you met her in Egerton Gardens. Mrs. Murray, wife of the Master of Elibank, the Radical candidate. He of course is all over the country at meetings, but she & I mostly turn up at the big ones. There is always the nuisance of getting some miles back to Edinburgh at night & generally wet. I hope we shall get him in alright. After this we shall try and get some rest somewhere. I find Egerton Gardens will be full stop & no room for me till November, so I shall do some more shooting up North. I have’nt decided on anything with regard to the future. I knew Mrs. Master was in England, but have’nt had a chance of seeing her. Please remember me to your father. With kindest regards. ever your sincerely

Harry Stanhope
